Stop At: Glacier Express, Bahnhofplatz 7, Zermatt 3900 Switzerland

Meet your tour guide at your per-arranged time in the lobby of your hotel. Toigether with your tourguide you will tranfer to the train station in Luzern. You will board an intercity train, which will take you via Zürich and along the lake Zürich to south-eastern Switzerland. After one hour and 20 minutes, you arrive in Chur, the oldest town in Switzerland. Depending on schedule, a short walk around with your tourguide will take place.
Back at the train station, you will take your seat at one of the panoramic coaches of the Glacier Express. Shortly after departure (around 11:45am), the lunch service will start, while you will pass through the famous Rhine gorge heading to Disentis. During your journey, audio comments by headphone are availabe or you simply as your tourguide. 
In Disentis, the train will start to climb to 2033m above sea level while a rough alpine landscape will pass the windows. On top, the "Oberalp pass" you will see a small lighthouse - your tourguide will explain you the story. The train will start to descent on a steep track down to Andermatt, a village on 1400m above sea level and now opening the new resorts. The train will stop in Andermatt for 15 minutes, that you will have the chance to get off the train for same fresh air. 
The journey will continue through the 15 kilometer long "Furka" base tunnel, constructed in 1982 to save travel time from Andermatt to Brig and to operate all year. The Glacier Express will continue through the “Goms” valley in direction of Brig. This valley is known as a destination for hiking (summer time) and winter sports. After two hours travel time from Andermatt away, you will arrive in Brig. In Brig you will get off the Glacier-Express train and you can take the chance for a little walk around through the pedestrian zone in Brig and the palace "Stockalper". You'll be shown the place, where the water level was 4 meter high in 1993, where the local river flooded the city center. 
Your tourguide will lead you to the right train in Brig, where you will board an intercity train. Your tourguide will most probably leave you in Brig and will handover all necessary tickets and information to you. The train that you board will take you to Bern, where you have a direct connection train to Luzern.
